Abstract

In this paper, we show that the well-known duality operation in the context of convex bodies in Rn is completely characterized by its property of interchanging sections with projections. Our results are compared to results by Böröczky-Schneider and Artstein-Milman, who showed that in many cases, the property of order reversing is sufficient to determine a duality operation, up to obvious linear modifications. In fact, we provide another result that recovers a known characterization of duality by the property of order reversing, and up to a mild condition, also a characterization of duality by interchanging sections by projections.
